* Moo-valous Garage Sale Pays Off : Blink and You'll Miss Cow Twenty

Don't blink now - but this Argos (cow #20) passing through.

Argos making a dash for it

Many thanks to all the garage sale helpers - Beth, Urve, Kyle, Julie, Earl, Austin and Alan and the Street Cat Rescue group. Thanks to everyone who donated stuff.

Okay - I have never done a garage sale with this much stuff ... I had no idea how much stuff I had accumulated. More 1000 books easily ... a few hundred cow items and that's the tip of the iceberg.

Thanks to Urve, I had tables, lots of tables.

The big surprises were the RAOK (Random Acts of Kindness) - one neighbor sent her wee son over to hand me $20 for the cow as a donation. Wow! At the very end of the day, when I was tuckered out and packing up, out of the blue someone pulls up and says now these are "garage sale prices". I explain it was for charity and he pulls out his wallet and peels out two twenty dollar bills for the cow. Then he really made my day - he took the headboard. LOL ... I could have paid him $20 (just kidding) but seeing a big furniture item walk off was great.

The Big Scoop on the Moovalous Sale - $380.52

We made $380.52 including $61 in donations. So a cow and third almost. Moo hoo! I also have reclaimed scads of space. Our left overs are going to SCAT and I have kept about 3 boxes of stuff to post on Kijiji.
